The State Deputy Governor, Dr.  Idiat Oluranti Adebule, who disclosed this today at the 3rd quarterly stakeholders’ forum of private schools owners held at the Secretariat, Alausa, Ikeja,  emphasized the State government’s determination  to  ensure   that all school children have access to quality education irrespective of whether they attend  private or public schools, adding that part of the tools at government’s disposal to achieve this objective is maintaining accurate and precise data on schools and their mode of operations , which she said the census seeks to achieve.

In her words, “The enumeration exercise is aimed at providing the State government with accurate data and necessary information on private schools so as to set effective quality control mechanism in place and monitor compliance.”

Adebule, who sought the cooperation of all the stakeholders especially, proprietors of private schools to ensure the success of the exercise, noted that the task of making  Lagos education a role model of excellence required that all stakeholders must consolidate on their energies, integrate their thoughts and ideals and work together as a team towards achieving the objective.


According to her, “Government is not comfortable with our discovery that over 15,000 private schools are operating in the State and only just 4,556 are approved and registered; Let me state it clearly, henceforth, Lagos State Government will no longer allow private schools that are not duly registered by the Lagos State Ministry of Education to operate in the State, their operation becomes illegal henceforth in the State.”
